Do photography professionally? If so, what type of photography do you do? Typically how much money can you earn?

My husband is thinking of doing photography professionally. How can he get started?

He can start by asking family and friends if he can take pictures and use them for his portfolio. Typically photographers do this at a huge discounted price. It's great practice and then he can get critiques on them.

I have been an amateur for about 5 years and have really just started professionally. I still have a lot to do to build up my portfolio before I start getting "pricey" I typically make about 100-400 dollars depending on what kind of shoot it is. My friend just recently paid me 250 to do engagement portraits for him. I am also doing my SIL's wedding in 2 weeks. The key is to build a portfolio before going full blown pro. The way I started is doing it for friends and family. You can't really start to charge until you have a good portfolio to show because lets face it, a client isn't going to spend hundreds of dollars on something if they don't have anything to look at. Photography is all about trust and if you can't get your client's trust, there's not point. I really wish him a lot of luck and if there are ever questions, feel free to ask! =)
